Schwalbe seems like one of those brands that e-tailers just order from BTI when a customer places an order. "In stock" is open to interpretation. Maybe it's due to their higher than average retail cost.

agree, universal is the way to go and their website tells you whats in stock. if you need superfast shipping and are willing to pay more then try competitive cyclist... universal will be cheaper but take 4-5 days longer.
We typically have a full run of the most popular Schwalbe tires, we order direct and store them in-house. HOWEVER... Schwalbe is currently having a tough time fulfilling orders and we are still waiting on the majority of our 2011 shipment.
I have some Rocket Ron 29er's on order from Schwalbe direct that I am anxiously waiting for... patiently (kinda).
PM what you are looking for and I'll see what the deal is.
